Editorial Reviews

Suit up for classic comedy! When kooky, spooky college profs Peter Venkman (Bill Murray), Ray Stantz (Dan Aykroyd) and Egon Spengler (Harold Ramis) lose their university jobs, they decide to go freelance, de-haunting houses in a new ghost removal service. As soon as they open their doors, their first order of business becomes saving beautiful cellist Dana Barrett (Sigourney Weaver) and nerdy Louis Tully (Rick Moranis), who’ve inadvertently opened the gates of hell…right in their own apartment building!

5.0 out of 5 stars Is it worth the Blu-ray version of it? September 22, 2009
Format:Blu-ray
And the answer is absolutely YES!

I won't get caught in the main synopsis of the movie, I'm guessing you know the story and the actors. If not you should be asking your self where have you been the last twenty years or so...now lets get into it!

Video Quality on this release is in full 1080p using the MPEG-4 codec on a BD-50 (50 gigabyte dual-layered Blu-ray Disc). This is a great catalog release. It is so refreshing to see a studio not attempt tweaking the original image with digital noise reduction and edge enhancement. This is a faithful to the source transfer. Clarity and resolution is where this transfer shines, all the little signs, switches, knobs and so forth are all clearly defined displaying an excellent depth of field. Colors are nicely saturated and accurate displaying good natural hues.

As for the Bonus Materials: these are presented in Standard Definition 480i and High Definition 1080i with Dolby Digital 2.0 sound.

* BD-Live - Keep in mind that BD-Live requires the user to be on a "Profile 2.0" capable Blu-ray Disc Player and connected to the Internet to access online content via the studio (in this case Sony). Once online you can access content such as downloadable trailers for other Sony Blu-ray Disc release upcoming and already available. Title specific content in this case is actually included. 2 different Ring tones are available which are just dialogue from the film. Standard rates apply to get these I'm sure, nothing is 100% free these days.

* "Cinechat" - This BD-live application allows viewers to chat with friends and family while watching the film. A easy to understand tutorial is included.

* "Slimer Mode" is a Blu-ray exclusive feature that is using Bonus View which requires the user to be on a "Profile 1.

5.0 out of 5 stars mastered in 4k - is it worth it? May 14, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I already have the 25th anniversary blu-ray edition of this movie, but I was wondering if the 4k would really upgrade the video quality which is not that great on the earlier edition, and this newer edition (at $14.99) was cheap enough to experiment with. I do not have any of the very expensive 4k equipment but the 4k is advertised that it will improve a regular blu-ray. Side by side with the earlier blu-ray version, I would say that there is a noticeable upgrade in the foreground of the scene and some shots come out very clear. It is enough of an improvement that I am keeping this one, but don't get rid of your earlier editions because this one does not have any features. The 25th anniversary blu has all the original dvd features plus some forgetable new features such as info on the Ghostbusters video game. So I am keeping them both. Amazon has the unfortunate habit of using all 555 reviews which go back to the dvd version which I find very confusing when I am trying to decide if an upgrade is worth it. As to the movie itself, it is still funny almost 30 years later, which is a testament to all the great actors, writer and the director, so I can't give it less than a five.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bill Murray at his comedic best June 26, 2004
Format:DVD
It is said that the role of Peter Venkman was originally written for John Belushi, but we'll never know how he would have performed in the role. Fellow "Saturday Night Live" alum Bill Murray stepped into the role and ran away with the movie. Harold Ramis and Dan Aykroyd fit into the story like a glove in Ivan Reitman's masterpiece, but Bill Murray steals his every scene - which means most of the movie - with a performance full of dead-pan, ironic, world-weary, been-there-done-that hilariousness.
He has a sarcastic remark for every occasion, and the audience is the only one in on the joke every time.
When prospective girlfriend Dana Barrett (played by Sigourney Weaver, who gets a plum opportunity to show off her comedic skills) gets possessed by an evil demon, she is transformed into a slinky seductress. Bill Murray has come over to her apartment and in his hilarious dead-pan manner lets the audience know that he recognizes all is not normal with Ms. Barrett. As hilarious and sarcastic as Venkman is, he's at least a gentleman of sorts and doesn't take advantage of the situation when the demon tries to seduce him.
"Do you want this body?" Sigourney-demon asks him.
He pauses for a perfect beat before replying:
"Is this a trick question?"
The special effects don't look like the CGI visions that have been on screen for a couple of years (this was 1984) yet they're part of the fun. Even so, the special effects serve the story rather than up-staging it, and when the movie was initially released I remember howling with the audience after the first special-effect ghost "attacks" Bill Murray and leaves him on the floor in a glistening mess.
"He SLIMED me!" Venkman yelled, and we laughed our heads off.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ghostbusters: The Reason for Owning a DVD Player! March 13, 2000
Format:DVD
I have grown up with "Ghostbusters", and was a fan of the cartoon series, the toys, and of course, the movies. I still am, and unfortunately, I wasn't all that pleased with Criterion's laserdisc release of the film. The picture contained a lot of noise, and the matte lines were so visible, that even director Ivan Reitman was upset about it. That's not the case here. With the release of "Ghostbusters" on DVD, digitally remastered and crammed to the gills with extras, including a live video commentary with Ivan Reitman and Harold Ramis that looks much like "Mystery Science Theater 3000", this makes the purpose of the invention of a DVD player clear! This DVD is excellent! It has everything I hoped for! They(Columbia/Tristar) really outdid themselves with this DVD. It includes numerous documentaries(instead of the usual 1 or 2), production photos, sketch artist drawings, and deleted scenes. Commenting on the deleted scenes, one of them was very strange, in which Dan Aykroyd and Bill Murray play street bums instead of Venkman and Stantz, with Bill Murray doing his "Caddyshack" riff. It's amazing that the cameras rolled for it, but it's there. The only thing missing was the inclusion of a scene that found it's way into the Criterion laserdisc, which followed the three ghostbusters leaving the college and Venkman commenting on how "he's gonna win the nobel prize". Still, it also becomes intuitively obvious why those scenes were cut once you watch them. Anyway, if you have a DVD player and do not have this DVD, you are really missing out. It's hard to think why anyone would not want to add the "Ghostbusters" DVD to their collection. If you don't like it, your as dead as those ghosts running around.

"Mastered in 4K" question?
This is a bluray. And not an actual 4k video. It's just using a new 4k scan of the film. They pulled this nonsense with Seinfeld's DVD's. Read the back of the box. "Remastered in HD". It was. But DVD's aren't HD. So you don't get the benefit. Same here. This is a downscale of the 4k...
